Bandung Factory Outlet Shopping in Jalan Riau

Bandung Factory Outlets Shopping at Jalan Riau

Factory Outlet Shopping at Jalan Riau - The Secret Factory Outlet

Factory Outlet Shopping in Jalan Riau is one of the well known places in Bandung. Some of the top outlets are found in this area such as Heritage, Secret and many others. If you are short on time in Bandung, I suggest you make it here to do your shopping. Fantastic buys for Childrens/Kids clothes and awesome stuff for the women/ladies.

The Secret Factory Outlet at Jalan Riau is the first outlet you see when you get there. Nice design and very modern. Inside, the deco is one of the best around from what I have seen. The area is divided into three areas. The main adult shopping, a courtyard with toilets, free wi-fi and some stalls selling food and drinks. Then they have a kids section on the opposite side of the building.

The Secret Factory Outlet - Personally, very stylish and modern

Shopping for kids is a haven at these factory outlets as there are just so many choices for you. Top brands and for all ages with really nice designs. Not like the ones you get in Tesco or Giant here. Oh yeah, for the women, this place has some great shopping too. So remember the name 'The Secret Factory Outlet' in Jalan Riau.

Factory Outlet Shopping Jalan Riau - Branded Club Boutique Outlet

Factory Outlet Shoping in Jalan Riau area takes some serious walking as the factory outlets are not next to each other. Towards the end where Heritage Outlet is located, it is a traffic junction with all four corners dominated with factory outlets. It is a good 1000 meter walk from one end to the other. So, get those comfy shoes on!

Factory Outlets at Jalan Riau - The Oasis Outlet

Along the walk from factory outlet to factory outlet, you will pass a small nice cafe to take a break and have some local food and drinks there. Walking around shopping at the factory outlets can make you really tired. Trust me, as a guy, even I was tired.

Heritage Outlet, one of the popular places in Jalan Riau

Factory Outlets at Jalan Riau - Heritage main entrance

Apparently, the Heritage building is one of the old Dutch influenced architecture and refurbished to maintain its look. It is connected to another huge factory outlet called Cascade. The items here are pretty good as well. I got some nice tees for my nephew in here. Easily one can spend a good 6 to 10 hours in the Jalan Riau area so be warned and warn your husbands or boyfriends.

Factory Outlets at Jalan Riau - Terminal TAS

Terminal TAS factory outlet is well known for their bags, purses and shoes. in Jalan Riau. Some gentlemen items available. Nothing to shout about in terms of brands, so no high expectations please. I took a walk inside Terminal TAS but found nothing interesting. Then again for the working ladies, there seems to be a number of interesting items.

Factory Outlets at Jalan Riau - Formen Outlet

Finally a factory outlet only for the men in Jalan Riau. Stratagically called ForMen Outlet, I couldn't help but walk in and to my surprise, everything for the man is in here. From casual to well dressed. At least they thought about the men. So, for the women, please send your spouses to ForMen Outlet while you go crazy shopping at the other factory outlets in the area.

At one of the Factory Outlets, I saw these monster sized carps. Look at them, huge and fat!

My conclusion on the Jalan Riau Factory Outlets - This place is much better to spend your hard earned money than side street shopping in town area. The varieties available make life so much more interesting. If your hubby is a MU fan, then good for him. He can blow half his salary there to be the envy of his other MU buddies or YOU can simply do it for him.

As mentioned above about the brands, just be cautious about the super luxury labels as they are 99% most likely fakes. So, if it floats your boat, then why not? Go for it!

For the parents with kids, you will find these factory outlets a wonderland! There are just so many choices available for children with prices ranging from Rp.10,000 to Rp.50,000. Gap, Guess and you name it for the kids. A true deal if you ask me.


Child Friendly: Yes, but with intensive walking and shopping, your kid is going to hit the sack after lunch.

Pram Friendly: There are walkways connecting most of the outlets.

Elderly Friendly: Because the Outlets are located along the main roads, there is some walking to do.

Wheelchair Friendly: Not really but you can get around.

Food Friendly: Plenty of hawkers around if you must eat. Otherwise, some of the outlet areas may have a restaurant or cafe.

Toilet Friendly: If I am not mistaken, all outlets have toilets inside which are decent and clean. None of that Malaysian style toilets.

Safety: Very safe in the Factory Outlet areas.

Road Crossing: Outlets are opposite each other on the main road so you will need to cross the roads. There is no Zebra Crossing. Anywhere will do.

Smoking: No smoking in the Outlets. But puff away outside if you must.
